1 Draft / Confidential 1 Common Core and PARCC : NJPSA March 30, 2012

2 Draft / Confidential Curriculum & Assessment Foundation TeacherWho should decide what students need to learn in Chemistry? Agreement on learning objectives and the use of common assessments to share best practices is a powerful tool to improve student achievement Principal It is more efficient and potentially more effective for a district to develop standards-based curriculum District leader Quality implementation of the CCSS across all districts and schools requires the state to take on an enhanced role State leader

3 Draft / Confidential The Quiet Revolution: Why should the NJDOE develop a “Model” Curriculum? Common Core State Standards Fewer, clearer, more rigorous Internationally benchmarked Commonness Leverage state and nation-wide expertise (46 States and DC) PARCC (23 States and DC) Continuous improvement Model 1.0 followed by Model 2.0 3

4 Draft / Confidential Clearer … The CCSS Difference: Grade 7 ELA Before: NJCCCS (2004) 1. Produce written work and oral work that demonstrate comprehension of informational materials. After: CCSS (2010) 2. Determine two or more central ideas in a text and analyze their development over the course of the text; provide an objective summary of the text.

5 Draft / Confidential Before: NJCCCS (2004) 1.Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. After: CCSS (2010) 1.Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse. 2.Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. 3.Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system. The CCSS Difference: Grade 8 Math

6 Draft / Confidential The CCSS Difference: Grade 3-5 ELA: Integration of Knowledge and ideas Grade 3: Compare and contrast the most important points and key details presented in two texts on the same topic Grade 4: Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgably Grade 5: Integrate information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgably. 6

7 Draft / Confidential College Readiness : Grade 11 ELA Write arguments to support claim(s) in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence Introduce precise knowledgeable claims(s), establish the significance of the claim(s), distinguish the claim(s) from alternate or opposing claims, and create an organization that logically sequences claim(s), counterclaim(s), reasons and evidence. Develop claim(s) and counterclaim(s) fairly and thoroughly, supplying the most relevant evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level, concerns, values, and possible biases. 7

8 Draft / Confidential ELA/Literacy: 3 shifts 1.Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary 2.Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational text 3.Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text Note: Beyond ELA

9 Draft / Confidential Text-Dependent or Not The novel Sarah Plain and Tall is a great book to illustrate what things were like in the past. Possible center activities: Put out a very simple pattern like an apron, or place mat and have the students trace, cut out and then sew (by hand) the item. My students said overwhelmingly "I can't imagine sewing all of my clothes like that!" Have a wheat grinder, which the kids use to grind wheat into flour. We then use it to make scones from scratch later on. We made butter to go on the scones by putting cream and salt into a jar and shaking it for a very long time.

10 Draft / Confidential Mathematics: 3 shifts 1.Focus: Focus strongly where the standards focus. 2.Coherence: Links major topics across grades 3.Rigor: Requires fluency, application, and deep understanding

11 Draft / Confidential Grade Priorities in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual Understanding K–2 Addition and subtraction, measurement using whole number quantities 3–5 Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions 6 Ratios and proportional reasoning; early expressions and equations 7 Ratios and proportional reasoning; arithmetic of rational numbers 8 Linear algebra Priorities in Mathematics

12 Draft / Confidential Key Fluencies GradeRequired Fluency KAdd/subtract within 5 1Add/subtract within 10 2 Add/subtract within 20 Add/subtract within 100 (pencil and paper) 3 Multiply/divide within 100 Add/subtract within 1000 4Add/subtract within 1,000,000 5Multi-digit multiplication 6 Multi-digit division Multi-digit decimal operations 7Solve px + q = r, p(x + q) = r 8Solve simple 2  2 systems by inspection
